I've known Nancy and Veronica, from Dream in Color for years. They started the Waldorf school that my kids attended. Our kids were in the same classes. We carpooled. We started yarn stores the same year. Remember Fringe? Nancy and I were in the same book club. It seems our paths are meant to consistently cross.
So I guess I shouldn't have been surprised when I found myself driving cross country in February 2019 with my son Adam, so he could work at the Dream in Color studio while he figures out his next step. He mostly does customer service but it turns out modeling is also part of his gig.
While I was there, I took a moment to interview Veronica and Nancy for our Women Making History series. I asked them to tell me more about their recent Diversity color collection. We've had it at String Theory in Classy, Dream in Color's round, bouncy, super-wash worsted.
The pullover that they show us is Splendid. I'm working on Granny's Favourite. (The yarn is worsted and the pattern calls for DK, so I'm using size 8 needles and making the smallest size.)
